English Translation

The one who lacks spiritual wisdom sings religious songs. The hungry Mullah turns his home into a mosque. The lazy unemployed has his ears pierced to look like a Yogi. Someone else becomes a pan-handler, and loses his social status. One who calls himself a Guru or a spiritual leader, while he goes around begging - don't ever touch his feet. One who works for what he eats, and gives some of what he has- O Nanak, he knows the path. (Translation: S. S. Khalsa)
